Edmonton Global was created to advance economic development collaboration in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. Our work promotes the region globally and we’re focused on attracting and retaining business investment and trade right here.
We are the first ever regional economic development corporation in the region, working to create local, regional, provincial, national, and global partnerships. We collaborate with all levels of government and economic development agencies including our 15 municipalities, Invest Alberta, Edmonton Economic Development Corporation, Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association, the Edmonton International Airport, Edmonton Health City, and Invest in Canada.
Edmonton Global’s vision is to make the Edmonton Metropolitan Region the choice location for global investment. To attract investment and quality jobs to the region, our strategy is to strengthen and support growth, innovation, and competitiveness — all in collaboration with the region’s 15 municipalities.
As a foreign direct investment (FDI) and international business development company, we work as an ally to attract investment to, and promote trade from, Canada and our region. We’re ready to connect with you and support your work.
Supporting your in-market contacts on the ground while they travel to Canada. This includes meeting preparation, company visits, and other organizing efforts. Let us be an extension of your team.
